Banquet

We hold an annual banquet (April) to celebrate science in central Illinois.

We provide a formal award to our scholarship winner for the year.

We also announce our annual science treasure hunt.

And, we have a guest speaker. Our 2017 banquet was held on April 7. Paul Ritter (Pontiac Township High School) shared his insights and passions about science education. He focused on several student centered projects including:

Here are some photos from the event.
